A Performance in Pattern – Quilts & Cushion Covers

by - Wednesday, May 25, 2022


These Bengal Indigo Patchwork Quilts are made from naturally dyed indigo textiles by artisans in rural Bengal. They are a wonderful wandering grid covered with coarse running hand stitching.

We have paired them with a selection of 16" cushion covers and 24" cushion covers. Both quilts and cushion covers have a playful, country charm. 


Maiwa Founder Charllotte Kwon
Featured in The Long Thread podcast

In 2020, Anne Merrow, host of The Long Thread Podcast, interviewed Charllotte. You can listen to the episode here. 

Here is the Synopsis of the Episode

Recovering from a health crisis, Charllotte Kwon needed to find a new career as well as an outlet for her love of colour. She fell in love with the designs, hues, and pace of India, and she founded Maiwa to partner with textile artisans. Beginning with embroidery and printing, she cultivated relationships with families working in longstanding craft traditions, then worked to develop markets to create a livelihood for villagers who work with natural color. Maiwa's latest project is a new website that includes an exhaustive list of dyestuffs and how to use them (including 8 different methods for dyeing with indigo). In this episode, she reflects on how the scope of her project has changed over the decades—and what she hopes uncertain times will bring.
